This is getting real.
Yesterday it was just some low level employees involved. Now AP is reporting that senior IRS officials were aware of the targeting, via AP, IRS watchdog: Senior IRS officials knew in 2011 tea parties tax-exempt status being targeted (h/t @GabrielMalor):
WASHINGTON (AP) IRS watchdog: Senior IRS officials knew in 2011 tea parties tax-exempt status being targeted.
(added) AP has expanded its report now (h/t reader):
A federal watchdogs upcoming report says senior Internal Revenue Service officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups in 2011.
The disclosure contradicts public statements by former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, who repeatedly assured Congress that conservative groups were not targeted.
On Friday, the IRS apologized for what it acknowledged was inappropriate targeting of conservative political groups during the 2012 election to see if those groups were violating their tax-exempt status.
The Treasurys inspector general for tax administration is expected to release the results of a nearly yearlong investigation in the coming week.
The Associated Press obtained part of the draft report.
That report says the head of the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups learned that groups were being targeted in June 2011. It does not say whether Shulman was notified.

Many thanks to Lakeshark.
Remember, just because you’re paranoid it doesn’t mean
some one isn’t out to get you.
Wow, nothing more dangerous than educating people on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Senior IRS officials “knew?” They passed on orders from the WH.
” Wow, nothing more dangerous than educating people on the Constitution and Bill of Rights. “
Cut IRS work staff in half(pre-Obama)
Very interesting. Please pass the popcorn.
Come on Freepers, let’s get ‘er done!
This is what happens when you have a complaint press-the thugs think they can get away with anything.And up until now,they were right.
Did you catch that? “educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights,” there is nothing more dangerous to a budding tyranny than an educated populace.
We have a Constitution and Bill of Rights?
I’m sure that ALL paths lead back to the tsar of the US. Fraud, murder and coverups—a community organizers’ wet dream when he has the press on his side.
A perfect example of the limited Friday hangout - now when the report comes out the libs will be claiming “old news.”
If all the lies told about this administration were printed on paper and sent to Guam, it would likely capsize. Hat tip to Hank Johnson, (d) Ga.
I will repeat what Carney said yesterday when he was asked three time did was the White House aware of this at the IRS,
This just came up and I have not spoken to anyone
I will check on it for you
I am not aware of any of this but I will check
Looks like he is a little more curious since they hung him on the talking points. Could he be worried about his legacy?
Cautious , uhg
